Suspended Waltham police chief Thomas LaCroix has been taken off the city payroll after his conviction last week of twice assaulting his wife at their Maynard house last year, according to Waltham’s mayor, Jeannette McCarthy. LaCroix was placed on unpaid administrative leave following the Wednesday verdict, McCarthy said in an e-mail, but she declined to comment further. A Concord District Court jury convicted LaCroix on two assault-and-battery counts, one in which he picked up his wife Andrea and threw her in the couple’s garage and another that left her with a bloody, swollen lip. He was acquitted on charges that he assaulted his wife by slamming her head on a kitchen countertop.
